as expected, maybe management isn't executing. maybe economy takes a turn for the worse and suddenly your stock belongs to a sector that is out of favor. don't get sentimental. you got to sell. take a small loss and give a broken company a second chance to burn you and then take a much larger loss. lots of people hang on to the losers, often because they're waiting for them to get back to even selling. it's the worst kind of amateur mistake. but even then, these people know their losers deserve to be sold, they want to sell, they're just waiting too long for an unrealistic price that is too high given the downturn with the actual company. selling your losers seems to make perfect sense. selling your winners, though, that's totally counterintuitive for many of you. have to at least trim your biggest gainers. the first reason is simple, diversification. when you let your winners ride, your position can get too big. let's say you own a stock that doubled and doubled and doubled. maybe you bought apple that traded around 200. it represented 15%, it's now a much bigger piece of the pie, even i

smart and this business has become a terrific secular growth story. and the underlying economy ain't doing so hot. this new trimble is all about helping customers become more productive and more efficient, antidote for this low growth economic environment. it uses proprietary technology, collect data from other measurement technologies and it processes that data that's designed to tell the customers what's needed to improve efficiency of workers out in the field. especially at construction sites and new infrastructure builds. those software builds can cut fuel costs or improve customers service or safety standards. it all comes down to helping other companies to find new ways to squeeze more money out businesses. that's the kind of pitch that never goes out of style. certainly not one that the old trimble could have offered. it's a joint venture with cat pilller where their technology will be sold to cat dealerships for everything to machine control technologies. this gives the company a tremendous outsource international sales force. it looks like it's become the real deal. compan

the economy isn't able to handle the tax increases and spending cuts. we know those comments caused the bulk of the intraday pullback. the market was humming along fine. we did in the end rebound nicely. it was a huge victory for the bulls. the losses, regardless of the cliff and it's aftermath, we need to head off the personal portfolio management errors before they cost another dime for us. today we got two phenomenal examples of what could go wrong in banking. first we had hewlett-packard. if you are like me, i have both and hp pc and household printer. to finish at $11.71. best buy. the big box retailer, i have not once but twice done in the last six months. closed at $11.96. two household names that you may have been lured into only to have your hopes dashed. two unmitigated disasters. >> the house of pain. >> what went wrong? hewlett-packard was an accounting scandal. best buy was a hideous earnings shortfall. both seemed to shock investors. however, if you watch this show, you should never have been in these stocks. or you were betting against them. i told you that these companies wer
